‘Happy Birthday to ya!’

Stevie Wonder sang his famous song for HM the Queen last weekend on the occassion of her official Birthday and Jubilee.

Andrew, one of our Churchwardens, and his wife Odete both had birthdays last week as well. They celebrated with a wonderful BBQ this Sunday afternoon. After some grotty weather (see our blog entry about the day pilgrimage to Ladyewell!) the sun shone as mackerel, chicken and kebabs cooked over hot coals in their back garden. Music, drink and wonderful food continued all afternoon and into the night!

One of the Birthday cakes

There were several fantastic cakes made by Andrew and Odete’s nieces, one of the favourites being this very naughty Fosters cake! Hospitality and diversity are very important Christian principles that are at the heart of our Church community. Sunday proved that Nigerian hospitality has something to teach us all. Happy Birthday Andrew and Odete!
